I’m so grateful that I have Dr. Somai to guide me on this new & intimidating journey of RA and other associated illnesses. She provides detailed descriptions to how my lab results affect my illness. I leave each appointment with a clearer understanding of this journey.

I like that Dr. Somai allows patients input. For someone like myself that would like to avoid biological if possible, that is appreciated. I rarely have to wait very long to see someone.
